Quote: "Just as when the enemy retreated from Kyiv and Kharkiv oblasts and left Zmiinyi (Snake) Island, the alleged retreat from Kherson is the result of our proactive actions.

The defence forces of Ukraine have destroyed the enemy’s logistical routes and supply systems directly on the Kherson front; they have also disrupted its command and control system. Therefore, the enemy had no choice but to flee.

But at the moment, we can neither deny nor confirm the information regarding the so-called retreat of the Russian troops from Kherson. We continue to conduct an offensive operation as per our plan. Wait for the official report from the General Staff on the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s combat actions."

Previously: In the afternoon of 9 November, Sergei Surovikin, commander of the Russian troops in Ukraine, announced that the Russian Federation was transferring its troops to the left bank of the Dnipro River from Kherson. However, the Ukrainian President’s Office stated that a significant number of Russian military personnel remain in Kherson; there is no sign that they are retreating without a fight.
